Why choose a hand specialist?
The hand is second only to the brain in surgical and anatomical complexity. There is a fascinating and delicate relationship between its many parts, its nerves and tendons and joints.
Some general plastic and orthopaedic surgeons "have a go" at operating on the hand. Surely you would prefer a hand specialist, someone dedicated only to hand surgery, and who works closely with specialist hand therapists?
